Brake Caliper Rebuild

Can anyone suggest a good tutorial for this? I keep having to service my front brakes (like the klr has them) every 3 weeks. I was suspicious of the caliper piston seals, and today I went out to the bike and found a pool of brake fluid under the caliper, pretty sure its the culprit.

Do you have a service manual of any sort?? A Haynes manual will get you through this no problem.
